Ginger cream to burn fat

Ginger has a long reputation in the world of natural medicine. It has been used for centuries as a remedy to combat digestive problems, nausea, pain and inflammatory processes in the body, flu and cold symptoms, among other conditions.1 . But, did you know that this ancient spice also has an application in the world of beauty and cosmetics?

Apparently it not only helps you lose weight when taken orally, but its direct application can help reduce measurements , fight cellulite , invigorate the skin and improve its appearance.

In this article we will be talking about ginger cream , one of the most popular preparations to help burn abdominal fat, flatten the belly and shape the waist.

How does ginger reducing cream work?

The pungent compounds in ginger have been found to have the ability to2 3:

  • Activate skin metabolism
  • Boost blood circulation
  • Promote the elimination of toxins
  • Facilitate the breakdown of surface fat

Together, all of this helps you lose weight , tone and reduce measurements .

The thermogenic properties of ginger extract have been taken into account by the cosmetic industry, hence today it is a common ingredient in scrubs and reducing / anti-cellulite creams for the belly , waist, buttocks and legs.

Additionally, some of these ginger creams serve to improve the appearance of the skin, not only of the body but also of the face. According to several testimonials, the nutrients and antioxidant compounds of the tuber make it soft, making it look more elastic, youthful and free of stretch marks.

Depending on the product, the reducing cream may contain another active ingredient in addition to ginger; a very common example is chili extract.

How do you make homemade ginger cream?

Although it is possible to find these reducing creams on the market, we can also prepare our own version at home. Here we leave you the suggestion of how to make , and use , a fat-burning ginger cream that helps reduce the belly.


  • 1-2 tablespoons finely grated fresh ginger
  • 4-5 tablespoons of a light moisturizer (the one you use normally)
  • 1 medium towel
  • 1 elastic bandage
  • Hot water


  1. Soak the towel in the hot water for 2-3 minutes, squeeze it to remove excess moisture, and place it on your bare abdomen until the towel no longer feels warm. You must repeat 2-3 times, as that will allow the pores of your skin to open and prepare for the application of the mask.
  2. Meanwhile, you can start to make the cream. In a clean bowl, mix the moisturizer with the grated ginger and stir until well combined.
  3. Once you have finished opening the pores and preparing the skin, remove the towel, apply the ginger cream generously and wrap the abdominal area with the elastic bandage as if it were a girdle, closing at the end. A tingling sensation is normal at this point. Note: Some people prefer to wrap their tummy in plastic wrap.
  4. Let the cream act for approximately 4 hours; It is recommended to do it at night or at a time when you know that you will be calmly at home.
  5. After 4-5 hours, remove the bandage and rinse the entire area with plenty of cold water.

Repeat the same process 2 times a week, for at least 1 month, to see the results.

Making a Lemon Ginger Anti-Cellulite Scrub

Another way to use ginger to reduce fat accumulated in the abdomen and eliminate cellulite is to prepare a body scrub of sugar, ginger and lemon . Its application offers detoxifying, invigorating, thermogenic and toning benefits.

  1. Combine ½ cup of sugar, ¼ cup of olive oil, 2 tablespoons of freshly grated ginger, and the entire zest of one lemon.
  2. Stir well to form a compact and homogeneous mixture.
  3. Apply this scrub while bathing, massaging in an upward direction. It is recommended to emphasize the most problematic areas, almost always in the abdomen, waist, sides of the back, hips, buttocks and the back of the legs.

Note: You can store the remaining mixture in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

Does applying ginger cream have contraindications?

Although not the most common, it is known that some people can be sensitive to ginger compounds, either by oral consumption or by coming into contact with the tuber 4 5 . That means you should be very cautious when applying ginger cream to lose weight.

Consider that its use can cause side effects , including irritation , redness , swelling and itching , among other allergic symptoms.

Main cautions and warnings

  • Avoid applying any ginger creams if you have a known ginger allergy.
  • Before spreading it all over your abdomen, apply a small amount of cream to a tiny patch to see how your skin reacts.
  • Rinse immediately with plenty of cold water to remove the ginger cream if you experience abnormal symptoms. It should be noted that the tingling sensation is usually a normal effect.
  • Consult your doctor or specialist before using this or any other natural topical remedy, especially if you are pregnant , breastfeeding or have a dermatological condition.

Final thought

Ginger reducing creams are not a magic solution to lose weight or eliminate excess fat in the abdomen. Don’t expect to see results overnight. Its recognized thermogenic action can serve as a support to boost circulation in the different layers of the skin, activate metabolism, eliminate toxins and promote the disintegration of adipose cells, but true success depends on many other factors, such as diet, health status and level of physical activity.

If you try the ginger cream trick at home, consider sharing your experiences so that other interested people can consult first-hand information and decide whether or not it is worth it. Finally, remember that this remedy can cause adverse effects and be contraindicated in some cases.
